Thanksgiving Trip with Family

I spent the week of Thanksgiving with my family in Tennessee.  The first part of the week I only had my iPhone, so here is a small collage of the fun B had with his cousin.


Then, Koo Koo Nan (yes, that is what they call my mother) showed up with a fun, early Christmas present for both of the boys.  We won't see my family at Christmas, so it was nice for my parents to be able to enjoy a few gifts with the boys during Thanksgiving.


My sister, brother-in-law, Sam, and myself ran the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning while my mom and dad watched the boys.  Unfortunately, the two photos I took were with my sister's camera.  Then, we came home and finished preparing Thanksgiving dinner.  By this time, Sam had brought my DSLR from home.


My sister and I bought and made our first Turkey.  She did all of the recipe research, but we got up early to make the dressing and stuff the turkey.  It turned out great.  I must admit we were very proud of ourselves.



It is rare to capture a photo of the four us actually looking the camera.  It would have been complete had our little boys been a part of it; however, it is not easy to wrangle a 20 month and 3 year old.  


Hopefully, my brother in law will not kill me for posting this, but everyone has at least one photo of a
"turkied" out family member......right!?!?  However, he probably ate the least of all of us.


I will leave you with a sweet, flash filled photo of my turkey filled nephew!!
